Hosta 'Waving Wuffles'

A Tony Avent of Plant Delights Nursery in North Carolina introduction, this hybrid of H. ventricosa was registered by Tony in 1995. It forms a large size mound about 20 inches high by 42 inches wide with wavy, unruly foliage that comes to a curved tip. The dark purple flowers begin to bloom in mid-July.

Similar cultivars include H. 'Little Blue'.

In an article about hybridizing by Tony Avent in The Hosta Journal (1996 Vol. 27 No. 1),  Tony gives the following comments on cultivars he has introduced: "H. 'Waving Wuffles' - seedling of H. ventricosa with much narrower leaves and incredible ruffling...the clump gets much better with age!"
